Bridge Advisory Committee

The Bridge Advisory Committee was formed in 2017 to provide local advice and feedback to MaineDOT as it evaluates alternatives for the repair or replacement of the Falls Bridge at the reversing falls between the Salt Pond and Blue Hill Bay in South Blue Hill.

This historic bridge, constructed in 1926 (replacing an earlier bridge), is in a severe state of deterioration and is in need of very substantial repairs or replacement.


The Committee meets from time to time. when called by MaineDOT, to review the alternatives available to address the bridge’s repair/replacement needs, the impact of any such work on emergency services, vehicular and pedestrian traffic across the bridge, and other impacts (such as on abutting properties, the environment, recreational users, and many others) of the project.

In general, all Committee meetings are open to the public.

Members/Contact Information

The Bridge Advisory Committee consists of nine appointed members. Current members of the Committee are listed on the Town directory.
